Get More with Garden Infused WaterIn: Guest Post, Recipe, Summer Break Series July 30, 2016 By: Jemma@athomewithjemma
Carole West – Garden Up Green
Summer is Hot in Texas and I’m always reminding myself to drink more water Sometimes I forget because unless it’s ice cold with lemon or lime I’m not interested.
This summer I decided it was time to jazz up my water and turn it into Garden Infused water. Yes this is something I made up because I needed inspiration to help increase my water intake.
Drinking water benefits our overall health and most important it keeps us hydrated. This means I have more energy to keep moving forward.
Moving forward took me to the garden where I picked cucumbers and peppermint. I needed something with a wow factor so I brought home lemons and organic raspberries from the grocery store.
To make this garden infused water we begin with a vintage mason jar followed by a few ingredients.
Garden Infused Water Ingredients
First add a squeezed lemon slice into the jar, followed by cucumber slices.
Then we include raspberries and chopped peppermint. Chopping the peppermint is optional; the flavor is more pronounced which is something I like.
Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.
